when stalking pays off

So, I love giveaways. I love entering them and I love winning them. I don't know where this lucky streak came from, but I haz one. It's like a strange alignment of the stars & planets & moons or something. It's really freaky actually, but I have been lucky enough to win some really great products (of course, why would I enter to win some crap?) but I won't go into detail, I don't want to sound all braggy and lame.

Now. Modern Bird Studios. I have been stalking their giveaways for months, to the point that I joined Twitter to get the extra entries. (And then, luckily for me, they tweet links to all their giveaways - making it extra easy to stalk them!) Anyhow, they have this seriously cool take on modern art by turning your photo into a unique awesomesauce two-tone painting. Hand painted. Seriously a lot of work.
So, I won a giveaway. OH SNAP! After much hemming and hawing over which picture to choose... we chose this one:

NOW, the next very ultimate other hard part. Also: Lame. I have been pestering them and going back and forth and trying to figure out what color combination to get! Here are my current options, please help me decide! Remember: the final result will be painted on wood, so some texture will come through.

Click on this collage to get a really good look at all of them.

What do you think? Please halp, internets!


  1. OK, i think the green in natural or the one directly in the middle are really great options. =)

    Also? I'm really jealous and hope you stub your toe. xo

  2. Oh yay! Congrats! I think the maroonish one shows the most detail for some reason. I really like it!

  3. I like the green middle one. And I am so jealous.

  4. At first glance I think the natural wood look and I also like the white background. So now you have many opinions and you know any of them will be great. Love Ya, Mom

  5. I have ALWAYS wanted one of those. I still know what pic I'd use. I like the 4th from the left (second from the right). Supa jealous.
